The Blvd. played (maybe) 6 shows in Fresno, CA before their untimely dissolution. These two songs are the only sonic artifacts that remain of the band... little glimmering rays of indie-pop sunshine. Funny they were recorded in Winter; although, if you listen hard enough, you can hear the cold nights leaking through the tracks as well. Don't tell me that you're bummed there aren't more songs. We're bummed too, but we're done being scab-pickers. Battle Rages/The Timing is a release on the... Topics: coattrack, indie, indie pop
This is a compilation of all songs recorded by Dance Danse Revulsion during their one summer of existence. Some were recorded digitally, others to cassette tape. Also includes the infamous "Fresnoize" sessions. Basically, a few guys in a room trying to make as much noise out of a "song" as possible, and then really attempting to finish the song all together. The title of the album is from T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land." 'Jug Jug' To Dirt Years is a release on the... Topics: coattrack, lo-fi, sadcore, noise, rock, shitgaze

The second physical Troubled By Insects release. Includes all tracks from Develop Policy, Implement [CTR001], plus many other unreleased tracks recorded during the same time period. A time-capsule of what Troubled By Insects was upon its initial launch--from instrumental tracks to quiet acoustic ballads to awkward blown-out bedroom pop.

GOG's awe-inspiring debut full-length. The auditory cup floweth over with fuzz and distortion, occasional red-lined keyboard, and passive-aggressive drum stylings. Multi-track song "suites" as an excuse to develop long and primarily self-important song titles. Most frequently compared to a magical journey through time and space. Mostly space, though.
